poster for Maider Lopez "Polder Cup"

This event has ended.

In 2011, ISCP launched an annual solo exhibition series offering two ISCP current residents and one ISCP alum the opportunity to present a solo exhibition of work that has not been previously shown in the United States.

Maider López was a resident at ISCP in 2003 and is one of the most prominent artists from the Basque region. The exhibition Polder Cup will include videos, photographs and an installation based on the artist’s recent participatory project, a one-day football championship in Rotterdam. This project was a collaboration between the institutions SKOR and Witte de With, The Netherlands.

López often creates interventions in spaces, situations and architecture, in order to generate collective participation and activate citizenship. Polder Cup shows the potential for people to transform and adapt landscapes. López constructed a football field in the polders of Rotterdam, low-lying tracts of land intersected by water ditches. This altered terrain demanded that the players of López’s conceptual game invent new strategies and rules. Through this site-specific intervention, López formed new ideas of public and social space by way of the popular pastime of football.
